Christmas Toy Appeal for Young Carers

Christmas,Young Carers 24 November 2021

Your gift can make a difference to a Young Carer this Christmas.

Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre are having a Christmas Toy Appeal, calling on all residents in the borough to help make a child’s Christmas a happy one.

We ask that you donate toys and gifts that are age appropriate. We are looking for unopened new toys and treats to cover the ages 5 to 18 years. They can be handed in at Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre in Hindley.

For the families we work with, Christmas can prove an extra struggle: trying to provide a perfect Christmas for their children whilst facing ongoing financial and emotional difficulties with challenging caring circumstances.

If you are looking to donate to a charity instead of sending Christmas cards this year, we would be incredibly grateful for any contributions to make a difference to young carers in the local community.
